“halloveen” or “the bet” for obvious reasons. however, i have to give an honorary mention to “new captain” bc everything (EVERYTHING) in that ep is hilarious to me. (wait. okay, so, maybe that is my favorite ep. wow, i just intrigued myself.)
which character of b99 do u relate to the most?
people who know me probably would say amy. but i just see myself as mark from the outside circle (or as jake would call him - carl!).
any song by joanna newsom (first song that came to my mind just now is ”in california”. so, listen to that. it’s wonderful.)
paste the last thing you’ve copied
bernardo atxaga obabakoak
what time is it where you are?
sun or rain?
i like the concept of rain but i prefer sun (that might sound weird but i’m always cold so i feel a little better if it’s warm).
are you a glasses person or a contact lens person?
have you ever broken a bone?
yes, my elbow
where would you go if you could travel anywhere in the world?
i’d love to go to so many places. idek. maybe, the enchanted forest of oma in spain (basque country). i always wanted to go there. or just any forest in that region. they look really beautiful. so, yeah. let’s go with that.
aliens or dinosaurs?
i don’t mind either actually. i like birds, so i’ll say dinosaurs (there were some fascinating / terrifying dinosaur-birds (that’s not the term but you get what i mean (i hope))).
what is the first thing on your bucket list?
i don’t think i have a bucket list. for now i guess i want to learn to bake a cake that tastes good (i can bake but everything tastes like baking soda with cinnamon in it. so, i’d like to change that). i refuse to acknowledge the fact that it’s not meant to be. i’m gonna do it one day. (does this count as something from a bucket list?)
my 11 questions for the next people:
a situation for you: you can only watch one tv show or two films for 10 years. what show / films do you choose?
another situation for you: it’s your birthday. what 5 famous or notable people do you invite to your birthday dinner (they can be dead or alive and from any professional field)? (it’s your birthday bc then these people in this hypothetical situation are your friends and they will bring you some presents. and that’s really nice, right? so, imagine that.)
choose a question to answer and answer it: favorite book growing up? or favorite author? (not necessarily growing up. maybe you’ve already grown up. who knows?)
if you could speak any language what would it be?
oh look. another situation for you: you can be a part of any band / musician for their tour. what band / musician are you a part of and what do you do (i.e. do you play some instrument or maybe design the lighting or work with sound. you can do anything.)?
can you tell a joke?
what is the weirdest / funniest expression / phrase / slang you know (in any language)?
another choose a question to answer and answer it: chicken or egg? or if you have one, who is your favorite artist? (these are paired bc every artist probably asks herself/himself this question sometimes. and who doesn’t tbh?)
what historical time period would you like to live in the most?
tell a random fact.
bonus question: are you having a nice day? i hope you are. 🤗🌻
thank u @jake-ames for tagging me. this was really lovely and fun to answer. i clearly went overboard with the questions but it strangely helped to ease the anxiety i’m feeling currently.
i have no idea how many people i have to tag. so i tag all of you who want to do this. honestly, if you want to answer these questions, i’d love to read them. i don’t actually know all of you (i’m really glad that i know some of you bc you’re the sweetest souls i’ve met), so this is just my way of saying hello. i really just hope that you enjoy yourselves 😉. and if you don’t want to do it or you find my questions absurd, you obviously don’t have to do it. have a beautiful day!! 😊
Reuploading these because I realized after the fact that I unintentionally left out Russel in my last post and fucked up big time. Even though the last post was a simply collection of quick doodles I had done and I had simply not gotten around to drawing him yet, I can see why people were sad/upset at him being absent and again, that was never my intention. I sincerely apologize and hope this looks a lot better on my behalf.
can we talk about the fact that nintendo actually programmed an idle animation of Mario dancing when in proximity to music and of Link jokingly flexing his muscles when shirtless? can we talk about the fact that nintendo made their two most defining heroes complete dorks even now and said fuck you to the growing trend of overly serious, gruff, manly-man video game leads? because i think that’s kinda cool.
The man had her brother’s hair, but he was taller, and his eyes were a dark indigo rather than lilac. “Aegon,” he said to a woman nursing a newborn babe in a great wooden bed. “What better name for a king?” “Will you make a song for him?” the woman asked. “He has a song,” the man replied. “He is the prince that was promised, and his is the song of ice and fire.” He looked up when he said it and his eyes met Dany’s, and it seemed as if he saw her standing there beyond the door. “There must be one more,” he said, though whether he was speaking to her or the woman in the bed she could not say. “The dragon has three heads.” He went to the window seat, picked up a harp, and ran his fingers lightly over its silvery strings. Sweet sadness filled the room as man and wife and babe faded like the morning mist, only the music lingering behind to speed her on her way.
Whew, okay, so there’s a post going around right now with some really good information, but it’s a little bit obscured by the fact that it is in all caps and sort of…aggressive, so if anyone wants a quick reference for some commonly misspelled/misused words but gets triggered by being told in all caps, here it is retyped:
Piqued (instead of peaked, or peeked): Your interest is aroused
Fazed (instead of phased): to bother or disturb (usually in the negative), ie “it didn’t faze him.”
Psych: (vs sike or syke) Got you! A shortened version of ‘psychological’ or ‘psychology’ and a play on the idea that you have messed with someone’s mind.
Common word confusions:
Breathe: Present tense verb (as in “don’t forget to breathe!” Breath: Noun (take a breath)
Wander: To walk around aimlessly, to travel Wonder: To ponder or be curious about something
Defiant: Resistant (to glare at someone defiantly) Definite: certain (you are definitely going to the party)
Wanton: Deliberate, unprovoked Wonton: A chinese dumpling
Bawl: To cry Ball: a circle
Sleight: A trick, as in “sleight of hand” Slight: A little
Complementary: Something that goes well with something else (”Those colors are complementary”) Complimentary: Intended as a form of flattery
**A quick side note: the original post also included a cartoon of “complementary” versus “complimentary” coffee which was actually incorrect. If the coffee is free, it is intended as a compliment to the guests, which makes it complimentary coffee, not ‘complementary’ coffee
Misused idioms/compound verbs and phrases:
Might as well: (apparently someone in the OP has seen “mind has well” floating around?) Why not?
Should have (not ‘should of’): A common mistranslation from spoken-to-written English due to the contraction “should’ve” (which sounds almost identical to “should of”).
Couldn’t cares less (vs Could care less): “Could care less” implies you do care a little when you want to imply you don’t care at all. A very common idiom you will see used in both ways in many cases, though the first is the original and technically more grammatically true to your intent.
These are all the ones that appeared in the original post. I would like to take a moment to remind you that if you have misused one or more of these words/phrases, you are not a bad person; these are ‘commonly’ misused for a reason! English is difficult and it’s awesome that you’re learning to write and wanting to become better at it. Please feel free to add to this post as well if you would like, but let’s keep it kind. :)
